The family regretfully announces that after battling numerous illnesses over the last number of years, that Don passed away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 80 on April 2, 2017.
He is survived by his loving wife and soul mate, Flo, who shared a wonderful 58 years of marriage; his sons, Dale (Jodie), Scott, Grant (Karen); his special grandchildren Matthew, twins Abigail and Caitlyn; and his sister Grace Helm (Norm); numerous nieces, nephews and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Murdo and Freda; his sisters Joyce Christman (Ernie), Carol Kruper (Bill) and sister in-law Sylvia Lofto (Barry).
Don founded Sinclair Electric Ltd. in 1976, and through dedication, hard work, honesty and respect, successfully grew and operated the company for over 35 years.
Don received a great deal of pleasure from sports through participation, and during his later years as a fan.
A Celebration of Don’s Life will be held at a later date.
Memorial donations, in lieu of flowers, may be made to a charity of choice.
